The seed is the word of God.
—Luke 8:11

The parable of the sower makes it clear that the sower, as such, is only responsible for the scattering of the seed and not for the harvest. The anxiety of some evangelists to butt heads in the matter of supposed conversions proves that they deem themselves responsible for results. Over-zealous sowers are guilty of counting numbers—the Holy Spirit produces numbers that count.

And, further, as seed, the Bible has life within itself. It describes itself as “the living Word.” Seeds, however, although they possess inherent life, have to be sown in good soil and be wrought upon by the forces of nature ere they can germinate. Thus is it with the Word of God.
